Friends of the Doylestown Library book sale scheduled


The Friends of the Doylestown Library will host its week-long indoor book sale this fall – the first time the event has been held in four years – at the Doylestown Library Center, 150 S. Pine St., Doylestown.

The sale will run from Friday, Sept. 30, through Saturday, Oct. 8, with the first day of the sale reserved exclusively for Friends of the Doylestown Library members. For membership information and book sale hours, visit: Sale items will include all genres of gently-used books, including newer fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books, in hardback and paperback, all for $1 each (cash, check, or Venmo only).

“This was a popular annual event, but it got postponed in 2019 due to library construction, and then canceled for two years due to COVID,” explained Friends President Steve Schreiner. “We look forward to hosting the sale again, and have thousands of great books to sell.”

Proceeds of the Friends book sales support Doylestown Library programs, equipment and materials, such as the Summer Quest and Reading to the Dogs children’s programs, the recently-installed interactive light board in the children’s area, and the monthly Book Page distributed free at the library.

“We’re excited to be able to host the indoor book sale again, and appreciate the library providing us the space we need,” said Liz McCarthy, chairperson of the Friends Book Sale Committee. “We’re also grateful for the book donations we receive throughout the year, without which our sale would not be possible.”

The Friends of the Doylestown Library is a nonprofit organization supporting the Doylestown Library.
